The world turns. The plague ravages the land. The sun comes up. The moon offers hope. Dogs continue to bark. Cats lay on my keyboard. We have a new website – And with it comes a new episode of the famed Black Dog After Dark Podcast! Dreamscape, starring the recently departed Christopher Plummer, is on tap. Take a listen. Lighten the load.

New Releases!


The Expanse S4 – If you like the sci-fi and haven’t seen this show, you should remedy that. Top notch.

Miss Juneteenth – Getting ready for the Miss Juneteenth pageant can be quite dramatic in this nice-looking drama.


Monsoon – A British/Vietnamese fella returns to Saigon for the first time in 30 years where he meets another fella.


Rudeboy: Story of Trojan Records – The love affair between Jamaican and British youth culture is told through the story of the iconic Trojan records in this fine doc.

Skylines – I think this is part 3 (there’s a 3 in the title!) of this series. Who knew?! Aliens and things are in store for you.
